Thanks to the huge level of support from World Community Grid, the team at the Scripps Research Institute has already received most of the matching data for the first target protein of the Ebola virus. While this data is being analyzed, the search now moves to another related protein with potential to help the fight against hemorrhagic fevers.

Hey All,

I just wanted to let you know that we will be releasing a version of Nbody tomorrow. I will be more specific on the changes that have been made after releasing. However, this version should hopefully be much faster and fix some other bugs.

193-digit GNFS coming atcha!

After five GPU-weeks of polynomial selection and a thousand CPU-hours of trial sieving, I've queued up a 193-digit GNFS from the aliquot-sequences project.

For this one I choose parameters to run through c5=1..10^7 in five GPU-weeks, which came out as stage-1 norm of 1e28 and stage-2 of 1e26. The best polynomial came from the first block, with c5=286440. Average yield (over Q=5e7*N .. 5e7*N+1e4 for N=1..8) is just slightly under 1, so I'm sieving 50M..500M to get a good number of relations.

There will be a 190-digit coming in about another three weeks when the polynomial selection's finished.

Nathaniel Stanley's thesis and departure

Hello all, This past Friday I defended my doctoral thesis, making me the second PhD to be produced thanks to GPUGRID.net. I owe you all a great debt of gratitude for supporting my work. My thesis covered my work on the study of complex binding processes in membrane proteins and disordered peptides. The membrane work was related to the enzyme FAAH and another work we are hoping to publish very soon. The disordered protein work was also a really great surprise for us, and will be continued further. The thesis itself will be published publicly after an embargo period (due to the still-unpublished works it contains). We will post the link as soon as it's available. I must also announce that I will be leaving GPUGRID and moving on. I haven't accepted a position yet, but it is looking like I will be moving to a university in California in the next few months. It is a great opportunity and I'm very excited about it. I will continue to push forward biology with the methods and applications that I have learned working on here. Thanks again and onward, Nate

The research team has combed through the grid computing results of Say No to Schistosoma, using several additional analytical techniques to help them select promising compounds. The three most promising substances are undergoing additional testing with the hope of identifying the most effective potential treatments for schistosomiasis.
